Terry Doran's one act play about a man contemplating ending it all with the High Street Players, four actors participating in the play. In Fort Wayne an audience member liked it so much she arranged to have it at Manchester College Play ends at 26:00 and the rest of the program is two psychologists acting out and discussing an actual case history of a suicide. With audience response, it is lively and illuminating. Quite a few members of the audience are smoking.
